To supplement his meagre income as a travelling labourer, Jan de Prentenknipp sold his cutout prints often in exchange for a place to sleep.
His ‘cutouts’ take the form of chiselled images on paper, painted with watercolours and sometimes handwritten texts. His work, which has been preserved in the collections of national institutions and private collections, provides a unique view of the nineteenth-century Zeeland world
